History of the Soldier

Fort Verde State Historic Park

April 7-8, 2018   Saturday 9:00am-5:00pm and Sunday 9:00am-2:00pm

Fort Verde State Historic Park will honor veterans at its annual "History of the Soldier" event. Through living history interpretation, the park will honor the dedication, commitment, and sacrifice of the military men and women from the Armed Forces of all eras. We invite veterans from around the state to attend this event.

Visitors will also experience military encampments through a living history timeline from all war eras. Other activities will include flag raising ceremonies and special memorial services as well as the drill calls, colors and retreat, the firing of the cannon and Gatling gun, and military tactics and demonstrations, all performed as part of the event. Don't forget to stop by the Dutch Oven Cookshack to see demonstrations held throughout the day.
